RiRi just gave one of her realest interviews yet to Vanity Fair. Find out why she’s sex starved, a bit lonely, but protecting her heart more ferociously than ever. We’ve got the 13 new things we learned about Rihanna inside…

Remember those shots of Rihanna in Cuba from a few months ago? Now, we know what they were for. The raven-haired beauty is covering the November 2015 issue of Vanity Fair in a gorgeous spread shot by Annie Leibovitz.

As she bared it all in the bedroom of the Josie Alonso House, the “BBHMM” singer is showing more vulnerability than usual…and we kinda like it. She’s not sexing up all the guys we see her with. In fact, she’s not sexing anyone. And she has a damn good reason why. The Grammy winner is working on her eighth album and not releasing it until “it’s perfect,” and she’s treating her love life the same way. Her heart and legs are closed for business…until she meets the perfect man. She didn’t mention whether Travis Scott fits that bill.

Here’s 13 new things we learned about the fashion killa:

1. Chick eats Italian food like crazy but has a secret to keeping her perfect body.

“Legit, I have been in the gym every day this week because I am not willing to give up my food. But I will sacrifice an hour for the gym.”

2. She wants some action, but she’s not willing to have empty sex even though she could.

“If I wanted to I would completely do that,” she says. “I am going to do what makes me feel happy, what I feel like doing. But that would be empty for me; that to me is a hollow move. I would wake up the next day feeling like shit.”

“Sometimes it’s the first time I’m meeting this person—and then all of a sudden I’m ‘with them.’ It freaks me out. This industry creates stories and environments that can make you uncomfortable even being friends with someone. If you see me sitting next to someone, or standing next to someone, what, I’m not allowed to do that? I’m like, are you serious? Do you think it’s going to stop me from having a friend?” But, she adds, “I’m the worst. I see a rumor and I’m not calling [them] back. I’ve had to be so conscious about people—what they say and why people want to be with me, why people want to sleep with me…. It makes me very guarded and protective. I learned the hard way. … “That’s why I haven’t been having sex or even really seeing anybody,” she says, “because I don’t want to wake up the next day feeling guilty. I mean I get horny, I’m human, I’m a woman, I want to have sex. But what am I going to do—just find the first random cute dude that I think is going to be a great ride for the night and then tomorrow I wake up feeling empty and hollow? He has a great story and I’m like … what am I doing? I can’t do it to myself. I cannot. It has a little bit to do with fame and a lot to do with the woman that I am. And that saves me.”

3. Her relationship with MLB star Matt Kemp turned her off from being publicly boo’d up.

“We were still dating … we were just three months in and I liked his vibe, he was a good guy, and then paparazzi got us on vacation in Mexico. He handled it well; I didn’t. I got so uncomfortable because now what? He’s not even able to be seen with [another] girl, because I’m dragged back into headlines that say he’s cheating on me, and I don’t even [really] know this guy. Some guys … I don’t even have their number. You would not even believe it,” she says with a laugh. “I’m serious, hand to God.”

4. She thinks men no longer know how to be men.

“You want them to feel good being a man, but now men are afraid to be men. They think being a real man is actually being a pussy, that if you take a chair out for a lady, or you’re nice or even affectionate to your girl in front of your boys, you’re less of a man. It’s so sick. They won’t be a gentleman because that makes them appear soft. That’s what we’re dealing with now, a hundred percent, and girls are settling for that, but I won’t. I will wait forever if I have to … but that’s O.K. You have to be screwed over enough times to know, but now I’m hoping for more than these guys can actually give.”

5. She gets lonely.

“It is lonely,” she says, “but I have so much work to do that I get distracted. I don’t have time to be lonely. And I get fearful of relationships because I feel guilty about wanting someone to be completely faithful and loyal, when I can’t even give them 10 percent of the attention that they need. It’s just the reality of my time, my life, my schedule.”

6. She still has words for that police department worker who leaked her domestic violnce photo.

“[She is] a very nasty woman who thought a check was more important than morals. That shocks you? A check trumps morals by miles.”

7. She’s obsessed with new forensics and crime shows after watching “NCIS” and “CSI.”

“I used to watch them,” she says, “until I found The First 48 [homicide detectives, cold-blooded murders at convenience stores] and Snapped [true stories of women who lost control and committed murder]. Those are things that actually happened in real life,” she says. “I’m …read more
